Books by Peter de Jonge

BURIED ON AVENUE B by Peter de Jonge
Released: July 24, 2012

"De Jonge seasons what might have been a routine procedural with a heroine who's sensitive without being tiresome and a half-dozen nifty surprises."
Manhattan South's Detective Darlene O'Hara (Shadows Still Remain, 2009) scours the eastern seaboard for the truth about a grisly discovery in a community garden. Read full book review >
Released: May 1, 2009

"An abhorrent crime, a slimy perp and a noirish prose style—all good but all derivative."
In his first solo effort, James Patterson co-author de Jonge (Beach Road, 2006, etc.) introduces NYPD Det. Darlene O'Hara, charged with solving a grisly murder that's getting scads of publicity. Read full book review >
THE BEACH HOUSE by James Patterson
Released: June 10, 2002

"A vigilante pipe-dream topped off by toothlessly shocking revelations about characters even less substantial than the celebrity cameos: Dominick Dunne, Latrell Sprewell, Geraldo Rivera, and Billy 'Mudman' Simon."
Not to fear: Just because megaselling Patterson has teamed up once more with journalist collaborator de Jonge (Miracle on the 17th Green, 1996) doesn't make the pace of this slick, ludicrous thriller any slower, the puppets any more complex, or the sentences any longer. Read full book review >
MIRACLE ON THE 17TH GREEN by James Patterson
Released: Nov. 4, 1996

"Quite entertaining but too vulgar for kids."
Preceded by the release of the Kevin Costner film Tin Cup, and by the literary flourishes of John Updike's Golf Dreams, thriller-writer Patterson (Jack and Jill, p. 998, etc.) and journalist de Jonge's Christmas fantasy about a poor-in-spirit advertising copywriter becoming a finalist at the PGA Senior Open looks like a sales shoo-in.
